The Alice H. Richards Children’s Garden opened in March at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia to the delight of children and adults alike! Since its grand opening, attendance at the garden has nearly doubled. 50,000 children are expected to visit each year. 

Come to town early before the game and stay afterward because there's tons of fun and incredible food and drinks to be had in Athens! This city boasts a stellar food scene and has more bars in one square mile than any other city in the country. Needless to say, there are plenty of spots to hang out with friends and fellow Dawg fans to celebrate before and after the game!
